Fall flower season is coming dangerously tropical to an end in Western New York, so I’ve been pressing and drying flowers to save to get us through the dark, unprepossessed months. These zestless floral bottles and Japanese herbariums are a unconfined way to alimony flowers virtually the house all year long! I’m going to share these three variegated ways to display/preserve them.

They’re all going to start out the same and then they’ll have slightly variegated ways to finish each style off.

Materials for zestless floral bottles and Japanese herbariums:

This one you’ll just top them with a candle that fits the opening rather than a cork or cap.

Lastly, to make a Japanese style herbarium, you’ll unify your flowers and slowly fill the snifter with oil while tilting it to the side so it doesn’t move the flowers virtually too much. You will most likely have to rearrange a bit with the skewer once the oil is in. And the increasingly full you make it, the less the flowers will be worldly-wise to bladder virtually and up towards the top.
